Rätten som orättvis: en rättssociologisk studie om samspelet mellan politik och juridik inom jämkning av brottsskadeersättning
Sammanfattning: The Crime Victim Compensation and Support Authority follows and implements the Criminal Injuries Compensation Act with the purpose to offer support and help to individuals whom have suffered from crimes. However, the question regarding victim compensation and its purpose have been discussed frequently by the Swedish government as well as researchers who primarily discussed how to decide the correct implementation and estimation of victim compensation. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Act, however, consists a paragraph which restricts the instances where compensation is deemed unjustifiable. The essay’s purpose is therefore to study the enforcement and interpretation of aforementioned paragraph with the aim to increase knowledge on how political influences play into the juridical practice. This is accomplished with an empirical study, where experts within the subject of victim compensation participates in qualitative interviews. The empirical findings proved how the relationship between politics and law is heavily intertwined and that it is particularly palpable in the implementation and distribution of victim compensation. The analysis and conclusion presents themes of social construction, idealisation of victims and touches on the debate on how justice and moral places within the Swedish justice system.
